Linda and Steve Hammalian, Co-Owner’s of Little Treasury Jewelers, present a portion of proceeds from their annual Time-Out Watch Fair to Paul Schurick, Director of Partnerships at Oyster Recovery Partnership.
Little Treasury Jewelers partners with the Oyster Recovery Partnership for the fourth consecutive “Time Out Annual Watch Fair”!
After a 2020 hiatus, Little Treasury Jewelers hosted its annual Time Out Watch Fair on October 8 and 9, 2021. And for the fourth consecutive event the jewelry store partnered with, and donated a portion of proceeds, to the Oyster Recovery Partnership (ORP) of Annapolis, Maryland.
Little Treasury Jewelers, a family owned and operated business, has been a part of the local Maryland community of Gambrills for 20 years. “We love partnering with local businesses, especially nonprofits like the ORP that do so much for the community and the Chesapeake Bay.” — store co-owner Steve Hammalian mentions.
One watch enthusiast remarked, “I have been coming to the Watch Fair for years, and it simply wouldn’t be the same without the Time Out Oyster Tent.”
Guests of the event receive a ticket for three free oysters and are encouraged to enjoy more for a “Buck-A-Shuck”. All oyster shells are then collected, recycled, and used to help restore the Bay’s native oyster population. ORP has planted more than 8.5 billion oysters on 2,500 acres of reef and recycled more than 200,000 bushels of shell!
With Annapolis just a short drive from the jewelry store featuring many nautical-themed jewelry pieces and sport, sailing, and dive watches, the partnership with the ORP, working on restoring the Chesapeake Bay, is a perfect fit.
The annual watch fair attracts experienced watch collectors and novices from both near and far. Attendees experience and learn about over 23 different watch brands, get hands on with the fine watches they have only seen online, and receive one-on-one attention from store specialists and brand representatives.
